Library - Since the public meeting regarding the future of the library Coningsby have withdrawn their support due to lack of public interest.

There were very enthusiastic volunteers offering to work for the library but not enough local people wanting to use the service.

Both councils are concerned they might lose ‘Compass Point’, ELDC’s service for the community, and hope some provision may be provided.
